Band Registration: Band Registration opens on Monday May 18th and closes on Sunday May 31st.
FYI: Each band will be paired with a "Roadie" from our Event Staff to ensure that all bands are ready for Weatherstock. Be sure to direct questions to your Roadie, and to answer questions promptly
Note: Weatherstock is a competition. Winners will be determined at the summit following the show. One prize will be awarded via an internet vote of all attendees, a second prize will be awarded via an internal vote of LMB members.
There will be no voting-with-feet and no voting-with-hope-tokens this year.
New this year: Band selection for the competition will occur *AFTER* all the Weatherstock Concert Series shows are completed. Only competing bands will play in the WCS, non-competing bands will have a separate show.
Weatherstock Concert Series: The Weatherstock Concert Series is a set of concerts put on during the weeks leading up to Weatherstock. These are 1-hour concerts and these slots will be given only to bands that apply for the competition.
New this year: Playing in the Weatherstock Concert Series *IS* required for the competition. This is an opportunity for bands to showcase their talents for the judges to select them.
Competition Band Selection: There are 10 slots for Weatherstock, to be chosen by weighted lottery. Each band gets 1 ticket for applying. Each LMB Officer may give 1 ticket to a band of their choice. The 10 bands are selected randomly from this pool.
ALL BANDS: You can apply either to compete at the summit on Sat. July 25th, or to participate in the non-competitive warm-up show on Fri. July 24th:
Compete: Sat July 25th
Competition Bands: Please select possible times for your 1-hour Weatherstock Concert Series show (check ALL that apply).:
Sat Jun 13: Noon-6pm
Competition Bands: Please indiciate which of the above times would work BEST for you for your 1-hour Weatherstock Concert Series show.:
Don't see a way t' "check" ant slots in th' above item. Basically we could play any time on a Saturday or Sunday. Fridays don't works so well fer us. As t' th' BEST slot, any Saturday in th' early afternoon would be best, but we're flexible, long as it's a weekend.
Competition Bands: Do you have a preferred location for your Weatherstock Concert Series show? (low-level areas draw the biggest crowds).:
Th' Fairgrounds in Buckland'd be nice, but we ain't tied to it
ALL BANDS: Fill out the following section!
Multi-boxing: While not prohibited, please be aware that lag can be severe at the summit during the competition, so use multi-boxing at your own risk! The show must go on.
Bands: how many musician characters are in your band? Note: we require a minimum of four members to be considered for the competition at the summit.:
Membership's sort o' a fluid concept... but we'll have 8 players on Weathertop ;)
